Autocar Drives New BMW M6

Video / Comments

Plenty of ponies and a delimited top speed of 189 mph, the new M6 is undoubtedly a beast but has BMW over-tamed it? Autocar investigates.

Compared to its predecessor, the new BMW M6 appears far more aggressive and has improved power capabilities to match, with its new twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 (nabbed from the M5) delivering 552 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque to the wheels via a seven-speed M double clutch transmission. While being the fastest two-door car BMW has ever made, hitting a top speed of 189 mph and managing 0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds, it has also been made a more capable daily driver.

In Autocar's latest video review, the British publication takes the BMW M6 out for a spin to ascertain whether the Coupe remains a driver-orientated machine or whether its enhanced level of refinement has compromised its hardcore qualities.
